You made a good choice. I'm on my second Lebeda. I let my first one (see pic.) go through sheer ignorance of the fact that Mandolins need time to 'play in'. I can testify to one thing though,the build quality is second to none !. With due respect to Weber,my 2001 Lebeda 'Special' which i bought used,makes my Fern look a bit 'plasticy' - but that's an individual builder's perogative.
The only thing that i would say,is play it hard & long & it'll come good. They are very good instruments indeed,made in a country with a long history of building musical instruments of the Violin family,
